Alltel phone users will not happy to receive this news: From Jan 17th of this year, Alltel devices won’t be activated on Verizon network any longer. In another words, you will no longer be allowed to bring your old Alltel phones to a Verizon retail agency to be activated on its network.
However, there’s still something happy in this unhappy news: If you belong to lucky people who are using an Alltel-branded device on Verizon network, this new policy change will not cause you any trouble because it doesn’t affect Alltel devices that are currently working on Verizon network
It has been three years since Verizon bought Alltel and become a biggest wireless carrier in theU.S.Since then, Verizon has encouraged their customers to move to current devices to get the most benefits from their network. So, if you happen to be among those who are told that your old Alltel phones cannot be activated on Verizon, just make your unusable Alltel phone become a useful phone by getting it recycled. Besides, Verizon Wireless’s representative also encourage those with unusable Alltel phones to take advantage of promotions that are currently offered on their Website.
